Two Swiss Giants

By Published on .

Phaidon Press has a pair of recent monographs on Swiss design legends: Josef Müller-Brockmann and Max Huber. Both are $75 hardcovers billed as the most comprehensive volumes ever published on their respective subjects. The former features more than 400 images culled from Müller-Brockmann's personal archive, including sketches and production drawings from never before seen projects. Similarly, the latter includes a collection of Huber's never before published original artwork and archival photographs in 12 thematic portfolios with accompanying essays.
